Your cumulative college GPA
Your average grade from BIOL& 241 and BIOL& 242 (or equivalent)
Repetition of these courses may affect your application
Your highest English composition grade

You should also be prepared to pay a $50, non-refundable, acceptance fee.
What else should I know before applying?
